Post USB boot does not mount my partitions
I am creating a USB rescue stick based on the Linux/ext3/grub example. However, during boot I get this message
Quote:
Media not found


So I added a large root delay to the kernel command line which still did not work.

In the mini-shell I found /dev/sdb but not /dev/sdb1 and etc. This suggest that the device was found at least but the partitions devices were not created. So I did a mknod for sdb1 and was able to mount the partition. Any idea why this is not automatically being created? Being a rescue disk the device could be sda, sdb, sdc and etc.


Here is the list of devices (/dev/sd*)
Code:
brw-rw----    1 0        0          8,   0 Jun 10 16:32 /dev/sda
brw-rw----    1 0        0          8,   1 Jun 10 16:32 /dev/sda1
brw-rw----    1 0        0          8,   2 Jun 10 16:32 /dev/sda2
brw-rw----    1 0        0          8,  16 Jun 10 16:32 /dev/sdb


Here is /proc/partiions
Code:
major minor  #blocks  name

   8        0   15761088 sda
   8        1   14707476 sda1
   8        2    1052257 sda2
   8       16   15794176 sdb
   8       17    1060258 sdb1
   8       18    3156772 sdb2
   8       19    4200997 sdb3
   8       20          1 sdb4
   8       21    2104483 sdb5
   8       22    2104483 sdb6
   8       23    2104483 sdb7
   8       24    1060258 sdb8


Thanks in advance for the help!!!!

It looks simple: you have to create partitions on your stick. You can use the sysresccd-usbstick script for that:
